Draft Climate Action Plan

 

Building a Healthy, Equitable, and Resilient Community

In December 2020, County Executive Marc Elrich released the Draft Climate Action Plan (PDF, 32MB) for public review. The Climate Action Plan is Montgomery County’s strategic plan to cut greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions 80% by 2027 and 100% by 2035. The Climate Action Plan details the effects of a changing climate on Montgomery County and includes strategies to reduce GHG emissions and climate-related risks to the County’s residents, businesses, and the built and natural environment. After receiving community input on the Draft Climate Action Plan, the County plans to finalize the Plan in Spring 2021.
